FBI releases details of seven suspects

US officials are searching for the following seven people they believe may be involved in a plot to attack the US:

Adnan G El Shukrujimah is a Saudi Arabian who used to live in South Florida, and is believed to be a possible leader of a terrorism cell or an organiser.

He may be carrying passports from Saudi Arabia, Trinidad or Canada.

FBI officials say they are particularly interested in him as he is familiar with the US, is proficient in using fake documents and is fluent in English.

Aafia Siddiqui, 32, is a Pakistani woman who was an award-winning student at MIT, and also gained a doctorate in neurological sciences at Brandeis University.

Authorities believe she is not an al-Qaeda member but think she could be a fixer who can get things done in the US for other operatives.

It is believed she is in Pakistan, where her mother said she was last seen with her three children. Her husband, Dr Amjad Mohammad Khan, is also wanted by the FBI for questioning.

Fazul Abdullah Mohammed is a native of the Comoros Republic, and is believed to be al-Qaeda’s ringleader in eastern Africa. He has been indicted in the US over the 1998 bombings of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. He has a $25 million bounty on his head and is thought to be hiding in Kenya or Somalia.

Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani is a Tanzanian who also goes by the names Foopie, Fupi and Ahmed the Tanzanian. He is also under indictment in the United States for the embassy attacks.

Amer El-Maati was born in Kuwait, and is wanted by the FBI for questioning about possible al-Qaeda links.

Abderraouf Jdey is a former Tunisian who gained Canadian citizenship in 1995.

He is one of five men who left videotaped suicide messages recovered in Afghanistan at the home of Mohammed Atef – reportedly Osama bin Laden’s military chief killed in a US airstrike in 2001.

Also recovered from the home was a suicide letter by Jdey from August 1999, in which he pledged to die in battle against infidels.

Jdey also goes by the names Farouq Al-Tunisi and Al Rauf bin Al Habib bin Yousef Al-Jiddi. He might have a Canadian passport. His last known address was an apartment building in Montreal.

Adam Yahiye Gadahn says he grew up on a goat ranch in California then converted to Islam in his later teenage years. The 25 year old US citizen also goes by the names Adam Pearlman and Abu Suhayb Al-Amriki.

The FBI has claimed he has attended al-Qaeda training camps and has served as an al-Qaeda translator.
